In a story you'll only see on News Center 23, Brownsville Police raid a home, finding several types of drugs, ready for distribution.
Police say for about a week, they've been investigatiing, and today they got a search warrant, went in, and found all kinds of drugs.
Special Investigators with the Brownsville P-D's Narcotics Unit, made this bust at a home on Clarissa Street, off Mackenzie. A K-9 sniffing dog was even on scene to help officers out. Investigators say, inside this home they found street-level amounts of cocaine, marijuana, and even a hand-gun.
Police arrested two men.
Police say, the men were distributing these drugs on the streets.
Brownsville resident, Janet Martinez says she was visiting her grandma next-door and became so intrigued, she grabbed her camera phone, and started taking pictures.
"I just saw the police put the guys on the floor, two of them, they handcuffed them, and that's when I took the picture."
Martinez says, this neighborhood is usually pretty quiet.
She says, she's never seen anything suspicious at the home before.
The two men arrested will now face drug possession charges.
